The Monuments Men is a classic case of over-expectations. The film sports a dream cast and follows one of the most interesting true-life stories from the World War II era. It’s writing is solid and its cast is spot-on, but thanks to a few script choices, The Monuments Men doesn’t pan out into the epic movie experience many viewers were expecting.
Looking to Pompeii, The Wind Rises and Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of sword and sandal adventures, animation for adults, and bittersweet but funny bio-docs.
Things keep snapping into place for The LEGO Movie. The animated feature dominated the box office for a third weekend in a row, adding $31 million to its impressive $183 million total. Very few animated films show that kind of staying power. The last animated film to do so well going into its third weekend was Shrek 2.
Considering seven separate categories, To 3D Or Not To 3D evaluates the full scope of the 3D viewing experience. Think of it as a consumer's guide for your movie-going, complete with a viewers poll where you can weigh in on how you plan to see Pompeii.
In the Northeast we’ve been getting crushed by weather, the snow piling up. What better time than to sit down and watch a movie?
Headed into theaters later this month is the Paul W.S. Anderson disaster film Pompeii, which will putGame of Thrones star Kit Harington amidst the chaos and devastation that ensues when Mount Vesuvius erupts. One of the new clips for the film demonstrates just how bad the situation gets...
I don’t want to say that January 2014 was a bad month for cinema, but the last time I saw something that rotten, I was arrested for desecrating 13 cemeteries. Luckily, I got out on good behavior just long enough to celebrate with readers how superlative February’s theatrical releases will be in comparison.
The photos come fromUSA Today, who spoke with star Keifer Sutherland about the film and how enormous it has to be in order to tell this epic(ish) tale. Anderson is apparently melding both worlds of CGI imagery and giant sets to recreate the ancient city that was completely destroyed following the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD, which covered everything in ash after flambéing it in extreme temperatures
OK, so we've got some time to come up with more Game of Thrones related puns to throw at Pompeii, which is indeed a recreation of the volcanic eruption that wiped out an entire Roman city in 79 A.D., and stars Jon Snow himself, Kit Harrington, sporting the kind of six-pack muscles that just do not get emphasized enough in the Night's Watch uniforms.
Either Kit Harington's been spending a lot of time working out lately, or Game of Thrones has been depriving us of his serious ab situation for far too long, keeping young Jon Snow all bundled up in cold-weather attire and concealing that glorious six-pack. It's actually the former.
Following up on a bit of date shuffling for FilmDistrict's films, with Walk of Shame set up for September 20 and Insidious Chapter 2 moving up a week to September 13, the studio has announced their recent acquisition of Paul W.S. Anderson's period-based action film Pompeii, which will arrive in theaters early next year.
Cameras may already be rolling on Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii, but apparently that doesn't mean the project is done finding new actors to join the cast. Three weeks ago we found out that Kiefer Sutherland joined the film in a villainous role, and today we've learned that yet another name has been attached to the disaster epic.
Kiefer Sutherland is perhaps best known for having played the heroic, terrorist-fighting CTU agent Jack Bauer on the long-running series 24, but he's getting ready to get his villain on in Paul W.S. Anderson's latest film.
With Resident Evil: Retribution behind him, and the upcoming Resident Evil: Reconfabulation - or whatever it ends up being called – looming next September, Paul W.S. Anderson needs a way to make some part of 2013 miserable for people who like cinema
There is good news and bad news, movie fans. The good news is that we presumably did not all die in an intense volcanic explosion. The bad news, however, is that Paul W.S. Anderson has not yet come out to say he has given up on making a movie about an intense volcanic explosion. In fact, that film’s cast just got a little bigger
